Welcome to the home page for NAPNES’ Council of Practical Nurse Educators. Membership in COPNE is in addition to membership in NAPNES. See our membership page for more information. COPNE provides annual PN Educator Workshops, researches and publishes national PN Education standards, and provides practical and vocational nurse educators an opportunity to network with peers. COPNE members enjoy their own private bulletin board where you are free to interact with one another, share best practices and ask questions.

P/VN educators from around the U.S. and internationally are invited to participate. COPNE members enjoy additional discounts to convention and workshops.

State P/VN educator groups are encouraged to become part of the only national organization for P/VN educators. COPNE is chaired by G. Constance Butherus, MA, RN.
